Good evening everyone. Another weekend behind us. These always seem to pass so quickly! In looking back, were you able to serve someone? Were you able to make a difference for someone? When I get up each morning, I try to set my mind that I am here to serve, and I want to make a difference every day. Most days I succeed. Today, I am reminded that we cannot do any of this alone! We need to ask for God’s help. We need to ask for help from our friends. We need a community of believers around us. Some days we can lift others, and some days others can lift us. We are not always in the same place.
Right now, I am in a season that I need lifted. I am very passionate about this ministry. I know it will help the kingdom of God. I know it will help congregations. I know it will help pastors. What I don’t know is God’s timing for this to happen. I left the corporate world 11 months ago. I left with 6 months of cash, and that has lasted almost double that time! God has provided for my needs.
Part of being a real and authentic member of the church is to acknowledge your weaknesses and be willing to ask for God’s help and the support of others. None of us can go it alone.
Vulnerability is a sign of strength and a gift to others. I acknowledge that I don’t have this ministry thing figured out yet. I pray each day for God to show me the way, and to bring me into contact with someone who I can help, or who can help me.
“Lord, help!” They cried in their trouble, and he rescued them from their distress. (Psalm 107: 6)
Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
(2 Corinthians 12: 9)
Ideas for Action: First, think about what you need help with right now. Then, share that need with someone else from our congregation this week. Right now, I need prayers, and financial support. If you can do either, I thank you. If I can help you, I am ready to support you in every way that I can.
